Autumn's Goodbye


The atmosphere melts into swirls of pink,


Clouds of fire flare the angriest red,


And when the sun attempts to conceal itself,


Beyond the everlasting horizon,


I encase myself within leaves of warmth,


Succumbing to a heart powdered with autumn ash,


Burning, swelling, and in my arms it blends,


Like the expanding sky, and I try,


I caress the grass kissed with droplets,


Moisture that gathers and clings to the blades,


A fragile moment for a fragile season,


Sounds fuse together and the colors collide,


Together with a sinking sun,


A light to fade in the wake of my dreams,


My deepest desires, my selfish whims,


My darkest memories on fire,


And when the stars break through the velvet sky,


To sprinkle the earth with scattered light,


The moon glares, stares, and up high it lingers,


And still I drift on soft layers of silken blankets,


Tinged with memories of you,


Together we fall, we plummet and plunge,


Until winter brings a soft cloak of white,


To lose us in hills of ice and snow,


And although we never wanted a goodbye,


To the leaves and sweet scents of amber,


Fingers gently glide over the frosted trees,


And tired lips whisper upon the frigid air,


A farewell to the silken flow,


The autumn and the seductive glow,


The everlasting colors that melt with the snow,


And flicker out,


Like the dying light of a sinking sun.
